Full Article Attached Mozilla Minotaur Project Formally Launched

Monday March 24th, 2003

In a newsgroup posting, Scott MacGregor has formally announced the launch of Minotaur, a project to create a stand-alone mail client based on the Mozilla suite's Mail & Newsgroups component. While Minotaur will have largely the same feature set as Mail & Newsgroups, it will sport a simpler and more customizable user interface, much like the Phoenix redesign of the Mozilla browser. The revitalised Minotaur project combines the work of both the original Minotaur effort — which aimed to build a stand-alone version of Mail & Newsgroups — with that of Thunderbird, an enterprise intended to create a mail client to accompany Phoenix.

Please if possible implement a pref or workaround for the bug 75866 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=75866> "Viewing message for very short time shouldn't mark it as read" It's higly annoying for most people who have been converted to MailNews from Outlook Express and maybe other mail clients too.

Also some bugs that should be on more active radar IMHO: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=157372> "multiple smtp/pop3 accs per set of folders" - also must-have for many OE converts.

<http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43278> "Crossposts (same Message-ID) not marked as read in other groups"
